Xbox 360 Gets a $50 Price Cut And a Bunch of New Bundles for the Holidays

The Xbox 360 is getting a set of holiday bundles as well as a short-term $50 price cut, Microsoft announced today.

As Kotaku reported over the weekend, the $50 discount promotion applies to the 250GB Xbox 360, the 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect, and the 250GB Xbox 360 with Kinect. (Not included: the 4GB Xbox 360 without Kinect.)

The holiday bundles all include an array of games and include one month of Xbox Live Gold. Those, with their pre-discount prices, are:
